Bethan joined the School of Social Sciences in January 2016, having previously been the recipient of several grants and fellowships at the School of Law, University of Manchester (2011-2015), and the Centre for Criminology and Criminal Justice, University of Oxford (2008-2011). She holds a PhD in Criminology (Keele University), an MA in Comparative Criminology and Criminal Justice (Bangor University, received with distinction) and a BA in Criminology and Criminal Justice (Bangor University, first class).

Her research interests lie in socio-legal and comparative understandings of policing and security. In particular: policing cultures, covert/undercover policing and surveillance; the operation and governance of private security; border enforcement; and the policing of social divisions. Bethan also has broad interests in crime and social exclusion under conditions of late modernity. She has conducted two major ethnographic field studies, both of which involved conducting prolonged observations of police officers as they went about their ordinary duties. She has been awarded approximately £600,000 in research grants from the ESRC and the Leverhulme Trust, and won a Simon Fellowship at the University of Manchester where she conducted research on the policing of international borders. Bethan is the author of Police Culture in a Changing World (Oxford University Press) and articles in major journals. She is currently writing a monograph (with Professor Benjamin Goold and Dr. Shane Mac Giollabhui) on a pioneering ethnographic study of covert policing (under contract with Routledge). Bethan sits on the editorial board of the British Journal of Criminology and is the UK Reviews Editor for Theoretical Criminology.
